Chasing Eveline
By Leslie Hauser
Available July 11, 2017

Sixteen-year-old Ivy Higgins is the only student at Carmel Heights High School who listens to cassettes. And her binder is the only one decorated with album artwork by 80s band Chasing Eveline. Despite being broken-up since 1989, this rock band out of Ireland means everything to Ivy. They’re a reminder of her mom, who abandoned Ivy and her dad two years ago. Now the music of her mom’s favorite band is the only connection she has left.

Even though Ivy wavers between anger and a yearning to reconnect, she’s one-hundred percent certain she’s not ready to lose her mom forever. But the only surefire way to locate her would be at a Chasing Eveline concert. So with help from her lone friend Matt—an equally abandoned soul and indie music enthusiast—Ivy hatches a plan to reunite the band.

The road to Ireland won’t be easy, though. And not just because there is no road. Along the way they’ll have to win over their Lady Gaga-loving peers, tangle with some frisky meerkats, and oh yeah, somehow find and persuade the four members to play a reunion gig. It’s a near-impossible task, but Ivy has to try. If she can’t let go of the past, she’ll never be able to find joy in the present.

Advance Praise for Chasing Eveline:

" Isn't music such a part of all of our coming-of-age moments? Leslie Hauser perfectly captures those wonder years set to the perfect soundtracks in her YA novel, Chasing Eveline! Experience the romance , and the rhythm with the perfect summer read for young adults or the young adult still inside you!" - Lorna Hollifield, Author of Tobacco Sun

" Outstanding celebration of music and life's adventures. This book is imaginative and leads the reader on a fantastic journey. Must read." - Lisa Dohren, Goodreads Reviewer

"A fun contemporary fiction novel that teaches you to let go of the past and to live in the moment. " - Beth, Goodreads Reviewer

"Excellent book. Loved the characters. Best friends Ivy and Matt go through struggles, worries, and decision making situations. It has a little sadness in it - just as life does. The struggles the kids go through are normal and lead to a good ending. A good, clean, well thought-out story." - Rosemary Gear, Goodreads Reviewer
